War’s arrest is seen as a preventive measure by the State police to foil Monday’s scheduled sit-in cum-seminar announced by united resistance leadership against oppression unleashed on Kashmiri prisoners.
A party spokesperson has condemned his arrest in strong words saying it amounted to State oppression and a denial of right to expression. “This highhandedness of the State shows the times we are living in. If one is not even allowed to demonstrate peacefully, it leaves a big void for violent demonstrations,” said the PPP Spokesman.
